Full unanimously approved a motion against gender violence against women (13/11/2008)

The full City Sewer, unanimously approved a motion by the Deputy Mayor for Health, Social Services, Senior Citizens, Women and Migration, Mónica García, gender violence against women, as this is a problem severe and global in nature that transcends cultures, countries, social classes or age.

Violence against women, allowed, excused or minimized by patriarchal societies, is one of the fundamental mechanisms by which force and keeps women in an inferior position compared with men, with the ultimate aim of maintaining the structure and pre-established social order.

These cultural aspects are the foundation of all assaults on women.

According to United Nations in the fight to eradicate the problem, it is absolutely necessary to start from the premise that violence against women is a violation of Human Rights, and as such constitutes an obstacle to the development of any society .

In our country, the Law 1 / 2004 of Integral Protection against Gender Violence is contemplated that the prevention of violence against women should focus on its primary causes, from the information and awareness of all sectors of society to prevent tolerance and combat the myths and beliefs that underpin it.

So from the field of education (both referred to the primary, secondary, and adult education) stressing the need for this offer:


A non-sexist and equal education to help remove obstacles to equality between men and women.

This education focuses on equal rights and opportunities between the sexes, the possibility of limitations question that sexism is for men and women and the overcoming of the values traditionally attributed to masculinity and femininity.

2. The training for conflict prevention and peaceful resolution of the same, through skills development and alternatives against the use of violence.

Monica Garcia, Councilman Women, continued to express in Motion, "the objectives of educational programs to prevent violence against women should be to encourage the construction of gender identity is not opposed to violence.

It is precisely education:

empathy and respect for human rights.

overcoming the gender stereotypes that lead to justifying the use of violence against women.

understanding the nature and factors influencing their emergence, dynamics and implications or consequences it causes.

development of empathy and solidarity towards the victims.

skills development alternatives to violence and skills and strategies to protect against victimization.

specific training of professionals in the field of health care as a way to increase early detection of violence and support victims. "

In our region, Law 7 / 2007, dated April 4, for equality between men and women, and protection against gender violence in the region of Murcia, which establishes general principles, among others, the elimination of violence against women in all its forms and manifestations.

According to this framework of powers, the Institute for Women in Murcia, considered as a priority to support the implementation of those programs, projects and activities undertaken Local Governments in the Region of Murcia and their purpose, guarantee the effective participation of women in all areas of social, economic, political and cultural life as the ultimate goal of equal opportunities policy.

Today, thanks to social awareness and increased knowledge was derived from the study of factors associated with this serious problem, a number of police-type measures, judicial, social and health care to improve the effectiveness of intervention and prevention of domestic violence.

The next November 25 we commemorate the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women ", a date that we must continue to be mindful to remember that it is a problem that still exists and that in general, the two main objectives to which strategies should focus on preventing violence against women:

Maximize your visibility through the identification and recognition of all its manifestations (microviolencias, psychological violence and physical violence), its form of appearance and dynamics in order to facilitate early detection, and minimize their justification, by questioning critical and changing beliefs, myths and cultural and social attitudes that favor maintenance, through strategies focused on non-sexist and equal education and social awareness.

Local political groups will join acts of solidarity and honor the next November 25th, 2008, International Day Against Violence Against Women and any manifestation of it, with the families of all victims, pledging to continue working as before now to eradicate this problem.

At the same time, ask the Government of the Nation, to put all the material and personal, more social resources, more effective, more coordination and more support for the autonomous regions and municipalities.

I urge the Government of the Region of Murcia, to continue with policies to fight to fight this social problem, as it has done over the years with the plans, actions, awareness-raising, education and services protection, foster care and attention, such as 112, and the application of the law of equality and ending violence in the region of Murcia.
